While the world is waiting for GoPro to release it's Flat Lens Dive Housing, there have been other companies already selling some solutions. While those solutions aren't warrantied by GoPro and will cost you an extra dime, this clever little solution from Jomol will save you a few bucks as a workaround. For this you'll need the extended LCD back housing that gives you a bit of room to turn the GoPro Hero camera backwards inside the housing. Beats trying to make one yourself and risk water leakage. What I like about this idea is that you can probably cut a few colored gels to help you get some better white balance underwater.

You'll get this special back piece when purchasing the GoPro Hero LCD BacPac Kit. Jomol claims images are sharp and has no obstruction in all field of views. Downside is you won't be able to use an LCD for framing a shot, but that's nothing new since the LCD was only a recent optional accessory. [Thanks Jomol]

So there were a few great GoPro HD deals in the past few days. If you managed to grab yourself one, another must have accessory is the GoPro LCD BacPac. This adds so much more functionality than the little front screen. Here's something interesting, the GoPro LCD BacPac is also sold on outdoor clothing retailer Eddie Bauer. Since Ol' Eddie B. is having a Cyber Monday today with 40% off, this even applies to the LCD BacPac. [Thanks Stephen & Peter Heald] You can find the Eddie Bauer GoPro LCD BacPac deal following the link, and make sure to use coupon code: CYBER40
